ABOUT #REPRESENTHER

Women make up half the US population and give birth to 100% of the population, but still make up less than 20% of Congress! We’re not guaranteed paid parental leave, universal pre-K, or equal pay – all of which contribute to the US ranking 28th globally on gender equality. Let’s use our voices and actions to change these statistics and demand better representation for women, regardless of race, class, age, religion, sexual orientation, ability, immigration status, or circumstance. To quote Audre Lorde, “I am not free while any women is unfree, even when her shackles are very different from my own.”
